Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

2 Timothy 3:8

_ _ NowGreek, “But”; it is no wonder there should be now such opponents to the truth, for their prototypes existed in ancient times [Alford].

_ _ Jannes ... Jambres — traditional names of the Egyptian magicians who resisted Moses (Exodus 7:11, Exodus 7:22), derived from “the unwritten teaching of the Jews” [Theodoret]. In a point so immaterial as the names, where Scripture had not recorded them, Paul takes the names which general opinion had assigned the magicians. Eusebius [Preparation of the Gospel], quotes from Numenius, “Jannes and Jambres were sacred scribes (a lower order of priests in Egypt) skilled in magic.” Hiller interprets “Jannes” from the Abyssinian language a trickster, and “Jambres” a juggler” (Acts 13:8).

_ _ resist — “withstand,” as before. They did so by trying to rival Moses’ miracles. So the false teachers shall exhibit lying wonders in the last days (Matthew 24:24; 2 Thessalonians 2:9; Revelation 13:14, Revelation 13:15).

_ _ reprobateincapable of testing the truth (Romans 1:28) [Bengel]. Alford takes passively, “not abiding the test”; rejected on being tested (Jeremiah 6:30).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 2 Timothy 3:1-9.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

2 Timothy 3:8

Several ancient writers speak of Jannes and Jambres, as the chief of the Egyptian magicians. Men of corrupt minds — Impure notions and wicked inclinations. Void of judgment — Quite ignorant, as well as careless, of true, spiritual religion.
